    Was just reading about the kawi in last edition of CMM yesterday. Pip Higham of the same organ did a GSX 6 decades ago. Think he was reconfiguring it as a Kat, or was he just making another?

    I read that the other day as well he said it was a waste of time.
    The Three cylinder RD400 600 looked far better

    I used his CAD method of making a bracket yesterday. Saved me a fuck up.
    Now to teach myself to be more patient and do it all the time.

    I always use cardboard and if required then the plywood version follows so you can try it out with limited stress.

    Here's one from like 3 weeks ago mounting an aftermarket chain guide on the dirtbike. Getting it in the right place for adjustments over wheel movements and to not drag too heavily took several iterations of holes. Then final in ally plate. Would have been a killer doing it in metal every time.

    Its actually 3 varying thickness pieces of plate bolted together to make it thick enough and central to chain run hence the sprocket appears to travel through the plate.

    I've done it a few time previously, about to do it again for the bash plate on the BSA

    New Escargot episode

    I was just thinking Yesterday. I'm about the age Hitler was when he shot himself. Puts into perspective how little I've done with my life.

    Revival Cycles - makers of the birdcage BMW. Good little video this. Also its made of titanium which is the perfect frame material - better than steel, better than aluminium, way better than crabon fribe. Downside is its difficult to work with.

    It has other downsides as BSA found out in the 50s.

    Steel, if it were discovered today would be considered a 'Wonder' material. Its elastic deformation far outperforms most other metals meaning it is less prone to cracking.
